What is a Backup Generator

Residential Standby Generators

A backup generator is a piece of equipment that will operate when it detects an outage. It works by recognizing the outage and starting the generator, transferring the electrical load to the generator. This means that the home will not go without power, because of the generator’s ability to detect and start automatically. These generators are fueled by natural gas or a direct source of propane. These generators come in different sizes which can provide different amounts of electricity, depending on the consumer’s needs. Backup generators require annual maintenance or after 200 running hours, keeping the generator well-maintained will ensure that it lasts.

Benefits of a Backup Generator

Backup generators come with a lot of benefits, the most important being that owners do not need to worry about losing power. No more losing work on your computer when the power goes out or needing to worry about the other problems often associated with power outages. This is definitely helpful for those who work from home, giving them more security in making sure their work is not lost. It is better to invest in a backup generator before you need one.
